Chrissy Tiegen, Jennifer Anniston and Ciara are just a few of the many celebrities who have taken their hair color to the next level by adding beautiful ombre or balayage highlights to their tresses. The way their darker roots gently transition into the lighter tones of color along the length of their hair creates a beautiful effect that makes the hair of these famous ladies look like it’s been kissed by the sun on a warm summer’s day.
Thankfully, this hot new trend in hair coloring isn’t just for the rich and famous. Anyone who wants to look and feel like a celebrity or add instant glam to their look can do so with ease with the use of ombre or balayage clip in hair extensions. You can pump up your look, make it more modern or just try a different color with these types of pre dyed hair extensions:
Balayage is a French highlighting technique where color is swept or painted onto the hair to create softly blended highlights. The roots are left dark and the color is applied along the length of the hair to create a soft and natural looking transition from dark to light.
Ombre, which means shaded in French, is a coloring technique where blocks of hair are colored in shades ranging from dark to light. Hair coloring begins away from the roots beginning with the darkest color at the top and finishing with the lightest color at the bottom.
